Legal requirements for Throwing Weapons

This throwing knife is of the winged type and is an extremely functional weapon. It is thrown low and horizontal to the ground, spinning like a multi-armed and lethal boomerang. Throwing knives of this form are found across much of Central and Sudanic Africa and particularly along the Ubangi River, a long tributary of the Congo, where this example was collected over 100 years ago.

A blow by any part of a throwing weapon, boulder (V7) or rock (V7) counts as a hit; so all parts of these weapons need to be strike-legal (V7). The tips of all projectile weapons must not be able to fit through a 2.25 inch ring. Projectiles, with the exception of javelins (V7), may not have solid cores (V7). Materials you may use for projectile cores include foam, sweatshirt material, and other soft, non-granular and non-rigid materials. Pennies, batteries, sand, and the like may never be used as cores. Throwing weapons may not have any exposed tape, and must have a legal cover.
